Потенциал Сибири и Дальнего Востока России в сопряжении Евразийского экономического союза и Экономического пояса Шелкового пути

Новости АТР. 2016. № 1(4). С. 46-52.

Joint statement on cooperation on the construction of joint Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) and the Silk Road Economic Belt (SREB) project was signed on May 8, 2015. It became a new milestone in Russia-China relations.

EAEU is an integrational project of Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz republic and since 2016 – Armenia. SREB is a Chinese initiative, which primarily implies the extension of investment activities in transport and logistics in Eurasian region. Though the EAEU-SREB integration is not so much transit project as co-development project. In this case EAEU provides institutional framework of cooperation, and China – investments. This model will allow not only to overcome potential differences in Central Asia, but also creates preconditions for full-scale economic cooperation in the community of Greater Eurasia, which may become a new center of economic development in the coming decades.
